This bulletin constitutes a final report of some phases of cooperative drainage studies in Cache Valley, Utah. The drainage problem in Cache Valley is typical, in many respects, of drainage problems in other irrigated valleys of Utah and the West in general. Application of the principles indicated by the problems will doubtless add materially to the productivity of the land in the several communities concerned and will also contribute to the advancement of public welfare in the general improvement of health, economic, and social conditions. Alkali and water-logging affecting large areas are causes not only of low productivity of the land and the water but also of relatively high costs of farm operations, on such lands as can be farmed, and of high costs of construction and maintenance of roads. Water-logged lands are also sources of danger to the health of man and of animals.
